No doubt Evans. Forrest has a lot of heart, probably the most heart in the UFC, but his skills cant match up to Evans. He would completely over power him and wrestle him to the ground. Forrest would be helpless.

I hate so say it, but when this fight happens...and it will...I predict a fight similar to the Evans/Bonnar match. There's no way Rashad wants to stand up and trade with Forrest Griffen. He'll take him down and do what he does. Rashad Evans wins by split decision.

This would be a great matchup!!! Both are fairly decent fighters. I dont think Rashaad could knock out Forest. If he was to win it would be by decision or for submission (dont ask me how). Forest can knock Rashaad out but Rashaad is good enough striker that he could give Forest a run for his money. Rashaad has the upper hand in the ground game but Forest has a decent take down defense (as we saw in his fight with Tito). With that said I would have to say that Forest would win, because he would put constant pressure on Rashaad, and Rashaad hasnt really shown that he can deal with that pressure or finish an opponent convincingly (and no that Lambert buy dosen't count, he was a punk). Plus Forest is almost there as far as his skills go. Rashaad, on the other hand has a little ways to go.

If Rashad Evans stepped into the octagon with Chucky Liddell,he would be KO'd within 2 minutes.

Would you bet your life on that? Any good Wrestler can give Liddell trouble...Look at what Rampage and Couture was able to do with him....Rashad Evans is on a Different Level....That man is the most explosive fighter today....Not to mention he has the fastest hands for a LT HWY.....He would pin Liddell up against the Fence and slam his ass down and there would be nothing Liddell can do.....Chuck has a problem with his conditioning....He's managed to get lucky in his last 3 fights...But if he faces Rashad he will get his ass beat....Tito might even beat him.

You can't compare Rashad Evans' wrestling ability to Randy Couture's. Randy was one of the best wrestlers to ever step into the octagon, if not THE best. and he couldn't keep Chuck down. Chuck's take down defense is so over looked due to the fact that he's such a wicked striker. Rashad Evans would not stand a chance at this point in his career.
